1. I have archived much of my life through collected objects.
2. I have moved a smaller studio, making it necessary that I get rid of a lot of these objects.
3. I have done so by using them as the raw material for one enormous collage, created inside a 30-yard dumpster.
4. Oh, also, I have photographed around 500 of these objects and will display them here, accompanied by a brief history of each item.

26 x 26.5 x 9.5 cm I found this on the street around 2002. I loved the patina of the chalk board. I laid down a hundred plans for what image it might host. Without touching it, this object became overworked, like a drawing you kill the shadows on. Subsequently, it lay dormant, but with enough "work" projected upon it that it couldn't be discarded, a pitiful state to subject an object to.
